Former president, Bill Clinton, has recently been released from hospital…
Clinton was hospitalized last week after doctors ran extensive tests and found an infection in his body.
He will now return home to continue his recovery… Keep scrolling for all the details.
Now, Bill Clinton is seventy-five years old, which has led to a lot of worry on social media over his ill health…
Back in 2004, the democrat had quadruple bypass heart surgery, and in 2010 had another procedure to open up a blocked artery in his heart, so it’s not been easy sailing for the ex-president where his health is concerned.
Last week, Clinton was rushed to hospital due to him feeling unusually exhausted…
He was admitted to the intensive care unit of UC Irvine Medical Center, where doctors ran extensive tests.
What they found was that Clinton was originally suffering from a UTI infection…
But as it had not been treated, it turned into something way more serious.
Doctors confirmed on Thursday that Clinton was being closely monitored…
And that he was responding well to treatment for a blood infection, otherwise known as sepsis.
According to a Twitter post, physicians Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack made a statement on Clinton’s current wellbeing…
They said Clinton was “admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well.”
They added: “We hope to have him go home soon.”
Clinton’s spokesperson, Angel Urena, posted a statement to Twitter on Thursday too…
He explained that Clinton’s infection wasn’t related to covid and that he is “on the mend.”
“He is on the mend, in good spirits, and incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”
And now, after spending several days in hospital, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
As, although he’s not completely out of the woods just yet, the former president is heading home…
Comments wishing him well poured in…
Clinton has been released from the University of California Irvine Medical Center where he was treated for the infection.
He will now return to New York where he will continue to recover at home.
Clinton, and wife Hillary, left the hospital at around 8 AM yesterday.
While exiting the building, Clinton stopped to shake the hands of the doctors and nurses.
Once outside, reporters asked Clinton how he was feeling as he walked to his car.
To which, he simply gave them a thumbs-up.
Dr Alpesh Amin, who oversaw Clinton’s treatment, said in a statement that his “fever and white blood cell count are normalized.”
“He will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics,” the statement read. “We are honored to have treated him and will continue to monitor his progress.”
We hope he’s feeling better soon!
